    Hi Karel,
    I still think your system is one of the very best I had the opportunity to listen to !
    Are your tube amps and cross-over finished ?
    Did Bruno came with is Digital amps to your place to make a try ??? (I know you hate them ...)

    have a nice day

    Horns

    Which system is the most spectacular? The Molinear site from France gets my vote as #1, but he's got to lay down some veneer on the cabinets for the 30" Fostex woofers.

    Hello, hello, hello Yves.
    Fine to read you.
    Aië, aië, aië, my "tube-X-over-24dB" is tuning in a nightmare. But, one night he shall transport the music. At this moment i listen to a CD BACH (BWV12).
    And or audio friend Bruno (the great Tacticus-doctorandus from the Nord) is always welcome in the 'Flanders-audio-campus" for a quickly test with his pandora "tact-amp".
    But you know me, i feel no need for "digital-sound-management" in a "normal home invironnement" with good tuned horn system...
    I am clear, i do'nt hate Tact situations. It is not my (musical) "diapason", and i respect each of us individualy diapason (or concept philosophy)....
    Yves , i am from the old audio school ....
    Let's feel the music emotions ....
    yves, let's talk about your home brewed (fait maison) "Iwata" (family) project ... If you need help, let me know.
    A good "maestro-horn-builder" in Iwata (horn) application (and more bigger) is or friend (Johan) "MAFUTA" (a new Roggero). Ask him (and go listen) for all your (wet)horn dreams ...magnificent ...gorgeous.

    Yves, i wish you a good and safe year end. A great new year 2006 (and much longer), with ambitious audio project and (important) in harmony with your (home) family ....

    Allez, salukes and "au revoir".
    A+

    Hi Johan,
    congratulations with your "great" and spectacular new audio concept (before Christmas).
    I can feel (barefoot!) the "bas" in my back garden ....
    Allez, salukes en tot "horens".

    It was the photos of your magnificent system that started it! Especially the wood Iwatas.They continue to amaze me.Surely the most unhorn sounding horn ever!

    The fat Iwata with the JBL 2490 was really the biggest surprise.It sounds so natural and undistorted. At times I almost think it is my old Quad electrostats(Of course until the dynamics swing in and I find myself in the kitchen!).That from a driver that has been called a "tin can" on this forum and elsewhere.

    Thanks again for all your advice; the Iwatas,scaling up an Iwata,putting me on to ALE and then Goto and (most importantly) the alignment of the drivers

    Hello "Mafuta"

    I own a pair of 2490H drivers loaded in 2392 horns ; these are very big and quite ugly from my wife's opinion ...
    (http://www.jblpro.com/pages/cinema/5000.htm#5671=)

    After my visit to Karel, I'm almost ready to build Iwata Horns (1inch for the TAD2001 and ... 3 inches for the 2490) plus maybe a bass horn with 2 Altec 416 8A
    Did you experimented anything else for the 2490 ?
    Thank you
    Yves

    Hi

    No.I wanted to use a larger Iwata from 250 to 1kHz.Upscaling the Iwata 1.5X gave me a 3 inch throat and exactly 1 suitable driver in the whole world i.e .2490. So I bought a new pair blind.Hence the surprise about the sound of the tin can.Other avenues included 2482,Altec 290 or twin Goto 505(ouch!) on suitable adaptors ,but then the fat Iwata would have become too deep ,making physical alignment difficult (Karel will bend your ear on that! -but I fully agree on the importance thereof).

    BTW you will not be sorry for all the hours (and money) spent on the Iwatas.Warning A fat Iwata plus driver must weigh close on 100kg!

    Good luck

    Johan

    Thumbs up

    Okay all you hornies, no messing around this time. From Crystal Method's Legion of Boom comes this image replete with horns, arrays, and direct radiators.

    OK, there have been some pretty awe inspiring pictures here of horn systems. I'll bring this thread back down to Earth with a more humble common-man take on horns. My picture is of a couple systems I usually use outdoors, typically back-to-back. Although, in this picture they are side-by-side for testing purposes indoors.

    Kleinhorns

    Those Kleinhorns look impressive. How do they sound?

    21" woofers? Made by who?
